Yes you can use a disk which is used for reformatting the system just like you can reinstall the windows in your system.
It will automatically reinstall the all booting files in your system and also remove your old operating problems.

But after installing the windows in the system you you have also need to install all the Motherboard Drivers in the system. If you have a Motherboard Drivers C.D. with you...fine...But if not have a Motherboard C.D. don't afraid at all.....you can find all the available Motherboard Drivers from the Website of HP.

Trying to restore os


Tap F1 when booting, to enter the BIOS Setup utility, and make your CD/DVD drive the first boot device. However, I'm not sure you need to put the system disk in to restore. This machine may have a hidden restore partition. Try this. Remove the disc, and invoke your restore by pressing F11 when booting, and follow the on-screen instructions. See page 49 of the manual for how to restore the computer to the original configuration... http://www.manualslib.com/manual/253462/Gateway-300x.html#product-GT5056

Trying to restore OS gt5056


I can't find the drivers in a place I would trust, and I can't verify this model has a Factory Restore Partition. This appears to be an XP machine, which is no longer supported. If it is, I recommend backing up your personal data asap, and plan on moving to a newer machine and Operating System. If the machine won't boot, and you have important files on it, you could purchase a USB Hard Drive Adaptor, pull out the hard drive, and copy any important files to another machine. Good luck.

How to restore factory settings on a dell inspiron 230 using disk


Hi,
if you want to reinstall OS:
Insert the disk, it should automatically open the install.exe thing and you'll need to follow the instructions.

if you want to restore the computer to factory settings and reinstall OS:
turn off your PC
keep pressing the key for boot menu it's F8 or F12 or F11 depending on the PC's manufacturer.
Then there will be either a boot menu or a "Do you want to do a system restore":
a) system restore, keep pressing the key and it will load. Then follow the instructions
b) if it's boot menu, insert the disk, and then select the option which says to load from the CD/DVD. Then follow the instructions.

NOTE - PLEASE BE CAREFUL, IF MAKE ANY MISTAKE, COMPUTER MAY NOT RECOVER.

Compaq cpq 5410us ran a factory restore from disk that came with computor when done it says remove disk and turn off computor tun back on and get nothing any ideas ?


What you will need to do is reboot the computer with the cd out of the drive. When the computer starts up you will need to hit f5 or f7 to get into the system bios. You will see a list of boo table devices choose cd-rom. put the cd in, power down computer. Turn it on and it should boot from cd and allow you to do the factory restore.

How can i perform a factory restore on my emachine w3619 without my start up disk..my computer will not load my sims 3 game and it used to be able to i tried everything (including system restore) to fix it


ask emachines for duplicate dvds of your startup disks.
your os is Genuine Windows Vista® Home Basic
any copy of that would work, but you wouldn't have the cyberlink or other software

before doing that
you may first try checking for viruses or startup programs
and then reinstalling any game software

maybe your sims is broken. verify that it works on another machine
